There’s Always Next Year

One of the many reasons Dynasty Football is the best version of fantasy football to play is that there is always a next year. This year’s misfortunes can be learned from and improved upon. Injured players you lost in week 1 will be back in full health. And finally, you can start building towards next year’s title run today. In that vein now is good as time as any to look at some players to target in trades for 2018.

  • Corey Davis, WR, Tennessee Titans: You’ll need to move quickly on Davis because he’s expected to return from injury after the Titans week 8 bye week. After an excellent week 1 debut where Davis had 6 receptions(on 10 targets) for 69 yards he injured his hamstring early in week 2 and hasn’t been seen since. Look for a contending team that may be skittish with Davis’s health and pounce.
  • Odell Beckham Jr, WR, New York Giants.: Trade for the number 1 dynasty asset? I know, that’s a groundbreaking thought, right? Whatever, I have to at least mention it.
  • Jamison Crowder, WR, Washington: The WR30 in 2016 and WR52 in 2015, Crowder was expected to continue his upward momentum this season and move into the top 24 WR range. That has come to fruition. Instead, Crowder’s targets, target shares, yards, receptions are all on pace for the worst of his career. Crowder has been dealing with a hip injury all year and has a new offensive coordinator he’s had to adjust to. The hype may have been a bit high coming into this season, but I believe Crowder is closer to the player he was last season as opposed to this season.
  • Andrew Luck, QB, Indianapolis Colts: This is another obvious one. When healthy, how good is Andrew Luck?

  • Sammy Watkins, WR, Los Angeles Rams: Entering the bye week as the WR50 is not what we hoped would be the outcome when Watkins was traded to L.A. But it probably should have been expected. Traded in the middle of the pre-season to the Rams it’s likely that Watkins is still learning the intricacies of Sean McVay’s playbook. Still only 24 years old, he turns 25 in June, Watkins was the WR20 as recently as 2015. His future still looks bright.

Who are you buying now based on the hope they turn it around or return to full health in 2018?
